Thank you very much! Have one question: i have Maximus IX Hero motherboard (z270), but found hardware id of my AHCI controller in iaAHCIC.inf from this latest drivers for 3xx/4xx, they're installing well. Should i keep 3xx/4xx version or use 1xx/2xx?

How do I verify the Chipset drivers were installed?

Hi,

You can see the version of the package in your installed apps (Windows Settings > Apps).

If you want see the drivers versions, the easiest and fastest way is to use Driver Store Explorer (because the devices are different according to the motherboards) by looking in System devices at the Intel .inf ending with system and which have the field of the last column Device Name filled.

Note (from Intel) : Intel(R) Chipset Device Software uses an unusual date for the devices it is targeting. The date 07/18/1968 is symbolic - Intel was founded that day. The reason this date is used is to lower the rank of Intel(R) Chipset Device Software. This is necessary because it's a supporting utility that should not overwrite any other drivers.

Ok, these are the only ones I see with a date like that. Not the same version number. Wrong or correct?

is chipset are important to install driver if we are using gpu on that mobo

Quick question regarding SATA controller: in case of having a classic sata hdd attached to one of the sata connectors to the motherboard, placed as an extra storage next to the NVMe dedicated to Windows, would this hdd need to have the SATA controller active in bios so for it to regularly be seen by Windows at boot?

I haven't tried to disable the SATA controller in this machine to see if the hdd doesn't show up at boot, as I have some tasks on that disk ruining at startup that is a bit complicated to pause, so sorry for maybe asking a silly and rather easy question to check my self.

Thank you.


Hi,

If an SATA HDD is used, of course, SATA controller must keeped enabled (and therefore the SATA AHCI drivers is needed).

Hi,

I don't understand why you are making a link between a GPU and the chipset drivers of your motherboard ? Unless you think wrongly that the chipset drivers are iGPU drivers.

But to answer you simply, yes the chipset drivers are necessary, whether you are using a dedicated GPU or you are using the iGPU of your CPU.

Thank you for the confirmation!!!

Hi MoKiChU

Sorry for what might be an obvious question but regarding the Intel SATA AHCI-RAID Drivers is it only the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver Software that's not included when compared to the download available from Asus here?

Hi,

Correct : Drivers Only (as indicated in the title of the drivers) vs Drivers & Software.

TurboV Core 1.10.07 says "Please install Intel MEI Driver from ASUS Support CD."
And sometimes AISuite3 says too that the MEI Driver is not installed.
I have Windows reinstalled and same "Error" but System runs fine.
And why is a 1# after the Intel MEI Driver?!
I tried different Versions but all the same.

The FW is Unknown

I have flashed the latest FW from here.

Hi,

Everything you show us is normal ("#1 at then end of the Device Name of the Intel MEI, "Unknown" in Date and Manufacturer in firmware tab of Intel MEI driver proprieties).

Regarding the error messages of the 2 ASUS tools that you quote, it is probably that they do not recognize the new Intel MEI drivers or that they want to see a specific version of drivers.

So you have the choice :

- Either you install the Intel MEI drivers from your motherboard support page, and if the issue persists, contact ASUS.
- Either ignore these error messages until new versions of these ASUS apps are released (taking into account the most recent Intel MEI drivers), if necessary contact ASUS so that they update/fix their apps.
